Goaltender Jordan Binnington vs. Goaltender Juuse Saros


Jordan Binnington‘s season statistics show that he, more or less, has made crucial saves for the Blues. He accounted for 26 wins and a 0.912 save percentage simultaneously, which allowed him to manage the Predators’ attacks, especially when faced with the sharpshooters such as Forsberg. Binnington’s seasoned play and the shootout save percentage suggest that he can withstand critical moves in shootouts.


On the other hand, Nashville’s Juuse Saros has been a backbone of their team, which has translated to a strong defensive structure. 32 wins and a goals-against average of 2.83 are Saros’ that come first to mind when you talk about his performance against the Blues’ superb offense, especially in regards to the fiercely-scoring Thomas and Kyrou. However, this performance will ultimately determine the outcome of the game.
